Review by snobb
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars Rare and quite unusual Jack Dejohnette album.His mother had died around this time and he composed this set in her memory and dedicated one track ("New Orleans Strut") to his father. Jack DeJohnette is even pictured on the cover with his wife and daughter, and numerous old family photos grace the inside spread.

Album contains one cover composition - Thelonious Monk's "Monk's Mood", all other songs are DeJohnette's. Even if album is recorded in 1984, it's atmosphere comes somewhere from 50-s and 60-s. Post-bop, even bop, combined with a few more modern moments, and melancholic, nostalgic melodies. Very often listener will feel as being on great jazz party from 50-s.

Music is very personal, sensitive, even romantic. And possibly the great thing is this album doesn't sound as remake or imitation of old time's jazz. This music brings listener to that time as time machine!

Rare example of really original bop-based jazz, recorded in 80-s. For sure you can't find even traces of fusion on this album.
